Smart Regions: Project HiProMine- Reducing CO2- emissions by cultivating larvae with compost waste as food substitute for animals

Additional tools


The project HiProMine is a perfect example of reducing CO2 emissions in a domain that you probably did not think about yet: Waste management.

The project uses compost waste, which would usually produce many Co2 emissions on a compost heap, to feed and cultivate larvae on an industrial scale. When the larvae are big enough, they can be used as food for animals like sturgeons, trouts or poultry. Watch the latest “Smart Regions” episode on the project “HiProMine” which is a great example of circular economy!
